  • Fiber Optics again

    As you can see below a local guy is boasting he is paying for 40 Mbps now. I thought the wonders of Fiber optics were their ability to handle millions of separate lines. So how come our UK BT set limits of 100 lines?

    ================================================== =====

    I've just had new high-speed broadband installed. Plusnet 40MB download for 16.49/month. The BT green boxes have just been installed but there are only 100
    high speed lines available per box. So hurry before the lines have all gone.

    Its possible that in their backbone they only have bandwidth to support a set number of high speed connections. They cant over subscribe themselves (Or they shouldn't i should say). Could be other things too but this is a possibility.
